I actually thought that this had some oak in the fermentation or the aging, and though it might, what I was tasting was also vanilla. While this a powerful Pinot Gris, it is missing the all consuming pear flavors that I am used to, but it does have peach instead. I would agree and say that this is a complex wine, and not meant for simple palates. This actually is hearty enough to drink on a nice brisk day, reminding me of something great to have when the leaves are turning and/or falling, or while sitting near water and letting the winter chill blow past you. This actually might be perfect for a clam bake.
